In this completely revised and updated edition of their revealing and often startling book, three of the world's foremost experts on our food system expose and demolish the myths surrounding world hunger. Drawing on extensive research, they examine the policies that keep hungry people from feeding themselves in both developed and developing countries. Straightforwardly and compellingly written, this second edition includes substantial new material on: hunger in the aftermath of the Cold War; global food production versus population growth; changing demographics and falling birth rates around the world; the shifting focus of foreign assisstance in the new world order; structural adjustment and other budget-slashing policies; trade liberalization and free trade agreements; famine and humanitarian interventions; and the 'third worldization' of developed nations. 'World Hunger' calls for a renewed sense of public will to bring an end to hunger in a world of plenty. The book will captivate the concerned general reader and make valuable reading for specialists and students.
